Fodor's Expert Review Bonneville Fish Hatchery

Cascade Locks Fish Hatchery

Built in 1909 and operated by the Oregon Fish & Wildlife Department, the largest state-operated fish hatchery is next door to Bonneville Dam. Visitors can view the fishponds in which chinook, coho, and steelhead spawn—October and November are the most prolific times. Other ponds hold rainbow trout (which visitors can feed) and mammoth Columbia River sturgeon, some exceeding 10 feet in length.
